this is the part of the show that features lebanon, jordan. she is wearing traditional garb from damascus. i do not know if you can tell but there is a lot of handstitched detail at the top. lena is wearing a traditional jordanian start out with handstitched work. these stars represent different countries. this dress is more of a jordanian style. this is a palestinian dress with hand importers from the top to bottom.
showing not only the diversity of our culture and region. through our clothing, it says a lot about how diverse the arab people are. thank you all for coming out tonight. ♪ again, thank you to everyone who has helped. everyone here, let's give them a round of applause for coming out tonight. i would personally like to thank michelle from the arab film festival and bonilla and others
who are not here tonight. they are the driving force behind the arab film festival. they are in berkeley and los angeles. a round of applause for all the work they do. last but not least, paul. without his generosity and support, this event would not be happening. thank you so much, paul. [applause] he is not only a mentor to me but the example of what civic engagement can be for arab- americans. if there is anything going on in our community, he is the first one to cut a check -- not only to cut a check, but he is the first to be involved. he is a mover and shaker and
successful businessman. we need to support his institution, an amazing chain of the burger chains in the area. thank you all for coming out tonight. we do have a reception. please help yourselves. >> thank you for your sponsorship once again. we will not know who the next mayor of san francisco will be, but one thing we know, the tradition that has to continue. everyone of you has to make sure that this happens. it is an important statement for our community. please come back every year. i have not told a lot of people about this, but i will be moving
to new york in february. it is important for me that this tradition continues. it is something that did not exist for our community, something that the mayor identified, and something that needs to continue. i am happy to support this every year it is in san francisco. [applause] >> please enjoy the reception. we have the game on for your enjoyment. see you next year. ♪
